Fully booked. Operating a wait list only. Full day course, 22nd February, London
On average, two-fifths of adults volunteer formally once a year and a quarter of adults volunteer at least once a month. The value that volunteering adds to the UK economy is in excess of £21.5billion.
For many small charities, volunteers are at the heart of the valuable work that they do. The challenge is in recruiting, supporting and managing these volunteers to ensure a successful volunteering experience, both for the charity and for the volunteer. This course has been designed to help your organisation to maximise the potential of its groups of volunteers.
This course will benefit volunteer managers, volunteer coordinators and anyone with a responsibility for developing or overseeing volunteering in their organisation.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and assess a range of volunteering activities that suit the lifestyle needs of different volunteers.
- Plan a volunteering programme in their charity, taking into account organisational objectives and planned activities.
- Develop effective strategies to recruit new volunteers, and retain, value and motivate existing volunteers.
- Manage the legal implications and other risks of involving volunteers in their charity’s activity
